and requests what a lot of liberal democrats are feeling right now. what jonathan wrote why is obama caving on tacks? the discouraging thing about the fiscal cliff negotiations is not that they have gone into the eleventh hour. it's that president obama has retreated on his hard line on taxes. obama may think his conciliatory approach has helped avoid economic chaos. instead, he is courting it." i want to go right to jimmy williams because you have been a senate staffer. you understand how this thing works. why would the white house even bother to increase from 250,000 to 400,000. they don't really have to. they're winning this fives fight. >> the only people that actually care whether or not the threshold is 250,000 to 400,000 are these people that are going to vote on it. nobody else really cares. all they really care is that you get a deal. these people are sitting at ground zero. these snores, these liberals. i'm a liberal. i don't care what the thereby hold is. i don't give a damn if it's a million. i just want them to get a deal or go over the cliff, but somebody just make up your min

" there's a shortage of of, especially in places like california, where 95% of the people are confined to about 5% of the state because of urban growth boundaries, is a shortage of places to build homes. when you drive on in the interstate freeway, you might see a lot of urban sprawl. if you get off the interstate, and we have a tremendous amount of open space and forests and farms in this country, they're not in shor

the government, democrats and liberals, obama, or anybody who has the right to decide when another american is wealthy? in the constitution, it is said that we have the ability to pursue life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. all this bickering is restricting and punishing achievement. i make next to nothing because of my past. i did my time. i do not care what they do. personally, i hope nothing happens, because i know the game. right before the deadline hits, they will pass something. i have been watching this for enough years to see that they will pass it. it will pass something because they have to play this game. host: charles from maryland, thank you for the call. trawls brings up a rebel. he will be on meat -- "meet the press" this morning. the highlight will be president obama on nbc's "meet the press." on abc this morning, senator chuck schumer. along with jon kyl of arizona. on cbs, dick durbin and tom coburn, the republican from oklahoma. fox news this morning, on fox news sunday, senator lindsey graham, the republican from south carolina, on what senator dianne feinstein,
the fiscal cliff. right now, the leaders of the house and senate are sitting down with president obama in a search for an 11th hour deal to prevent severe tax hikes and spending cuts from automatically kicking in with the new year. cnn's chief white house correspondent jessica yellin is getting new details. jess can ka, what are you hearing about that meeting? >> reporter: candy, the president is going to explain or reiterate the position he took on friday, that he would like a plan that extends tax rates for people who make $250,000 and below but raises them for those who make more than that. that it extends unemployment benefits for americans. and if the president, i'm told will say if he does not get an agreement to that plan, he will ask the other leaders what they can agree to, what what they would like instead. if they cannot come up with a proposal that will pass the house and the senate, will ask for a vote on his measure. but that meeting, candy, is still going on. congre congressional leaders arrived at the white house for a last-ditch meeting just days before a new year's de
. will there be a deal or will the $500 billion in spending cuts and tax hikes actually kick in? right now, negotiations going on behind closed doors. this while president obama has joined leaders in it both parties to make the case to the american people by appearing on the morning public affairs programs this morning. both sides pitching their proposals. but at this late point, some say any chance that congress has of averting the fiscal cliff will take serious late night legislative wrangling. good morning. i'm eric shawn. i'm heather childers in for jamie colby. without a deal the countdown to 2013 also a countdown to smaller pay checks for nearly all americans as the fiscal cliff tax hikes are set to take a bigger bite and the military facing serious cutbacks along with other federal programs that millions of americans count on. >> ed henry live at the white house with the latest on the negotiations. ed, we are really getting down to the wire. what did the president say this morning and will that make a difference? >> good morning, eric. part of what he was doing was putting the onus on republicans
'm disappointed in obama that he is not doing something quickly to relieve our stress. i'm on unemployment right now and the hard thing about finding a job these days, one day you hear about companies hiring. the next day you hear about another company laying off 300 people. walmart has been laying off people every year since 1990's and those people got great resumes. that is our competition. yes, i'm on food stamps and unemployment and it is a scary proposition. i don't want to be here. i go in a to a place three times a year to get help with my electric. i have to sit there from 5:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. in the morning. i'm so grateful and when i do get a job, with the schooling now, i'm going into the medical field. i hope i can put back. >> that's gail. last call is going to be froms we in south carolina on the democrats line. s we, go ahead. >> well, glad to be here. the other caller called in doing the talking points. they don't have a taxing problem we have a spemmedsing problem. spending problems are because of unpaid spending which was brought about by the republican party. look, barack o
watching and hoping for the best. chris? >> bob bazell, thanks so much. we'll be right back with congresswoman barbara lee. stay with us. >>> the senate is scheduled to get back to work and avoid the fiscal cliff 45 minutes from now. president obama will be watching with the rest of country for a deal to be hammered out. he thinks republican leaders need to bend. >> congress has not been able to get this stuff done not because democrats in congress don't want to go ahead and cooperate but because i think it's been very hard for speaker boehner and republican leader mcconnell to accept the fact that taxes on the wealthiest americans should go up a little bit and as part of an overall deficit reduction package. >> i'm joined by congresswoman barbara lee a democrat from california. good to see you. good morning. >> good to see you. glad to be with you. >> let me give you the republican perspective. it is that some indications they are willing to give on taxes whether 400 or 450,000, that yesterday they floated this idea of changing social security. they've backed off on that. t
does show that president obama is in the mid-50s when it comes to his polling ratings on how he's handling the fiscal cliff. republicans in congress are in the mid-20s. >> that's right, there's no question about that, tremont. obama has done a much better job of positioning himself to take advantage of the fiscal cliff. he has painted republicans is only caring about their millionaire and billionaire friends. taking hostage the people of america. you have steny hoyer saying that republicans want to take children hostage and threatened to shoot them. this is vilifying republicans and it has been incredibly effective. in the short term, absolutely, the president is set to take advantage of this. tax increases, massive tax reductions to the military. republicans really stand and the notion is appalling about who wins, but the republicans win because the economy is going to go out yet another fiscal cliff. george w. bush is not the president. obama is the president, he is not putting forth proposals to work with republicans. he will have to take ownership of this. they need to come
to george w. bush, 79- 93% of the residential nominees were confirmed. under president obama's administration, a discipline not right for the senate to just block nominations and never vote on them. but that has become part of the routine obstructure. i do not think robert byrd would have put up with that. that is a change. -- should be changed. there is a story that illustrates so much of what david said about byrd being a complex figure. senator byrd was extremely complex. he is a very proud man. he was very sure and how he wanted to be treated. he had this relationship with carter. they worked together on a lot of things. that relationship was torn the night of the hostage rescue mission. senator byrd was in the white house that night at the oval office of carter. carter outlined the idea of the mission without telling byrd. that was such a betrayal, it was simply a horrible mistake by carter to have not told senator byrd, who had done so much for him. that tore the relationship. >> byrd worked so hard for carter and for carter not to tell him, you're absolutely right. he
to spin it. i think doug is absolutely right that president obama has won on this, i think very short-term battle with respect to the tax cuts. however, the bigger issue that we are not discussing enough, which i think this whole debate should have centered around, is not the g.o.p. tax cuts, but in fact, the spending situation. so now we are almost at the fiscal cliff, it's the end of the year. but unfortunately, shannon, we are going to turn around, the end of february, and there is a bigger issue we are going to have to deal with, in terms of the debt. so i agree, i think president obama may have won the short-term battle. but i don't think he's going to win on this -- on the debt situation because that is when there is going to be absolute no negotiation on how much -- on what spending we do. it is going to be how much spending cuts that we are going to make because we are really at the point of no return, with respect to our debt. >> when you break out some of the individual leader who is are playing a part in this fiscal cliff negotiation, this is the latest gallup polling aroun
do we insent vise manufacturers with the right tax credits to invest in the united states? thank you. >> i wondered about obama's national export initiative, doubling them by 2014 if i'm correctly. >> i didn't plant the question. [laughter] >> so i was just wondering, first of all, what do we export? like, what would you say are the strengths where you export, and secondly, what do you think can be done by the government or other institutions in order to promote the exports that the goal can be reached? >> that's a great question. so one of the things that we export very well is planes. we export machinery, complex machinery. we export medical equipment. people are often shocked to learn, you know, what most people guess what we export, they guess weapons. that's actually not true. we are much more ideal deny istic -- idealistic as a nation. planes are less complex equipment with manufacturing. what's the challenges? exports under this administration are up about 32% over the last three years. they deserve credit, and it's also because we're coming out of a huge depression and some o
prediction, probably the right one, they're going to go home. suddenly once it passes, obama wim introduce his own package which will look like what he's proposing now, and they'll have nothing to do but accept it or else they'll get blamed for everything. >> can you recall a time in your life when you were aware of politics that encompasses, what, a couple of years, at least? a comparable level of incompetence in washington? >> the only thing i can think of is the last four years. i actually spent some of the time over the holidays for my sins reading bob woodward's book. and my overall reaction to all this is groundhog day. it's the same exact issues, some of the same players, same cautions of spending, entitlements, taxation, debt celling, what have you, nothing has changed. so what's so depressing to me is we've had four years or longer to wrestle with these issues. there's virtually been no signs on progress. here we are now with two more self-imposed ceilings. and increasingly, we've got a u.s. government that sticks a gun to its head. sorry to use gun metaphors, but basically sticks
. >> right. >> your party's nominee last year ran against obama -- or in this campaign ran against obama for cutting medicare. what are the specific entitlement savings that you guys want to enact? because that's your ask of obama. he's told you what taxes he wants to raise. >> i've got a whole list of them. i mean, certainly starting with chain cpi, but the age, the copay, means testing. >> he's agreed to that. >> betting on competitive situation in between medicare manage and deeper service without any cap i mean it adds up to about a trillion dollars. and when you have a situation where americans are paying one-third of the cost of medicare, i don't think people realize that, but literally people are paying one-third of the cost of medicare, we have 20 million more americans coming on medicare over the next decade, i mean it's a time bomb. >> i agree with you it's a time bomb. but remember that the -- the standing document for republican boldness is the ryan budget. you get credit for that. he did not have ten-year savings on medicare and social security. >> and i do. i think we obvio
ways. >> but on the details that aren't so specific. i think you get enough of those details right that people can buy into the show. barack obama is not watching the show because it's a brilliant portrayal of the c.i.a. it gets enough of the details what it feels like to be in those situations. i have no idea why i like the show -- >> i think it's less about the details. michael described it as it's not a pa lem i can and i think audiences smell propaganda but if you can introduce the complexity of what they do. "24" was not about a good choice and bad choice but the better of two bad choices. if there was a formula of "24" that would have been it. and i think these people saw and president obama sees as well there is something about the preventation of the complexity of some of the things that people who are charged with these jobs have to deal with. writing it and imagining it makes me glad it's not my job just imagining how tough some of these decisions must be makes you grateful. >> the verse that we show in frost nixon "the queen" and that is how much responsibility you take
children. the move reportedly is in response to human rights violations handed down by president obama earlier this year -- earlier this month rather. putin's new law destroying the dreams of many american families currently in the process of adopting, including this. >> they were already our family. we already had their names. we were already decorating their room. it's really. [crying] >> are you crying? it? >> is so disturbing, this story. 1,000 russian children were adopted by americans last year. children are disabled. not wanted by anybody else in russia. living in orphanages. not available for adoption. a the love these families have gotten really close to the adoption. set everything up and can't go pick up the kids. horrible. anyway, a maryland pizza delivery man fights off a group of attackers. his reward? a demotion. >> he sucker punched me. my glasses flew off. i dropped the pizzas and just dropped it into my hand. and i covered my face and i was swinging like this as hard as i could. five people against one is not a good situation to be in. i thought i was about to die. >>
, yeah. >> life is hard for a fashionista like you. >> life's rough. that's right. >>> ahead on "starting point," does president obama want to go off the cliff? that's what some are saying. they're saying it's been the plan all along. we'll talk to grover norquist, the president of americans for tax reform. that's next. >>> and it's not just for dr. seuss. a real life grinch breaks into one family's home. guess what? it's all caught on tape. just look at it. the family joins us live next. [ male announcer ] it's simple physics... a body at rest tends to stay at rest... while a body in motion tends to stay in motion. staying active can actually ease arthritis symptoms. but if you have arthritis, staying active can be difficult. prescription celebrex can help relieve arthritis pain so your body can stay in motion. because just one 200mg celebrex a day can provide 24 hour relief for many with arthritis pain and inflammation. plus, in clinical studies, celebrex is proven to improve daily physical function so moving is easier. celebrex can be taken with or without food. and it's not a narcotic
the campaign. you're suggesting that if i ask you what is the political calculation of the president right now or the republican, you sound like you're saying, you don't know or they didn't know or -- >> i think obama knows. >> he knows. he looks at the next four years an thinks what do i want to do. i want to do some economic stuff. i want to do climate change stuff, immigration, but i can't do that if we're going have a budget showdown every six months. so i need to crush them with this and guts out of the showdown era. and that's why they put so much emphasis the white house has on getting rid of the debt ceiling of having at least the two year agreement we won't do this because he needs to get us out of the show doner ar is and crushing means even in we go over the cliff. >> they need to get beyond 9 show downera. now i should say i don't think it's fiscally sensible what they are doing but politically i understand what they are trying to do. the republicans ind understand. >> david rogers, a very confidence professional reporter, congressional reporter now political from "the wall street

ceiling as barack obama did on tax rate. uma: you call everything going on in washington right now dysfunctional. the american people are kwaeutinwaiting to see what is going to happen here. many people are frustrated and upset that once again we are at the 11th hour trying to get a deal done at a time when there was a lot of time before this to work something out. >> because the senate doesn't function any more. the house has passed three or four bills to avoid sequestration, to save the military from these cuts, to deal with the fiscal cliff. if you don't like the house's product bring it on the floor of the senate and let's change it. let's start being legislators instead of just a place where ideas go and die in the united states senate, it's embarrassing to me being the most deliberative body in the world and not be able to have a debate about how the fiscal cliff drama should end. we should have had the house bill on the floor months ago. harry reid blocks everything coming from the house, this place is completely dysfunctional and this is why you wait on new year's eve to fi
time. all of these black people crazy about obama, you had better think twice. thank you. guest: you were right that houses were overpriced in california, but they were overpriced before the bubble. houses in north carolina might cost you $600,000 before the bubble, $1.5 million at the height of the bubble, and now down to $400,000 -- four times as expensive as they would begin south carolina, which does not have land use restrictions. host: denver, colorado, ron. republican women. -- republican. caller: good morning. it seems like the community reinvestment act that was passed in 1975 more or less laid the foundation for the housing bubble as that was the beginning of the sub-prime. that evolves and was expanded upon. business took advantage of it. because of that we get the ball. the -- bubble. the cra is still on the books, and sub-prime loans are still being made. i was wondering, do you think a major part of the foundation was the community reinvestment act and ended should be eliminated? he called the community reinvestment act, i do not think it had as big or roll was people l
greenhaus. let me say, you're hilarious and i'm going to miss you. jonathan tweeted, obama has utterly caved on taxes and inviting future hostage tactics by the gop. does that sound right to you? >> no. in the first place, he has insisted on raising taxes, letting taxes go up, is what we're doing, for people above a certain income level. he does not control the house of representatives. part of this issue, you know, people forget, the american people are the ones who set this stage. they voted for one set of people in 2008, then they changed their minds. at least those who voted, and voted for a different set of people in 2010. we have an unusual constitution. in america you're governed by the results of the last three elections, not just the last election in most other democracies. that's why you have this deadlock. i do believe the 2012 election moved us in this direction. so no, i don't think the president's caved totally. he's made some reasonable compromises with reality. the point that he's inviting, hesitating, is just wholly inaccurate. he doesn't have to invite hostage taking. the n

connell and vice president joe biden. that's where all of the action is right now. keeping the speaker of the house john boehner abreast of what's going on. keeping harry reid abreast of what's going on and keeping president obama abreast of what's going on. we heard from senator reid yesterday that they are very far apart. not just talking on the threshold, initially president obama said $250 mi,000. there is talk to bumping that to $400,000. republicans want to know how we pay for it. there are farm subsidies, the doc fix. and spending cuts. so there is a lot to be resolved here in the next few hours. >> too bad we only found out about this, you know, yesterday or the day before. 517 days they've had to work out the details and now we're talking about them all. brianna, we'll be busy today and may be ringing in the new year together. brianna keilar in washington. >>> a ball dropping in washington, a ball dropping in times square it looks like we'll go off the fiscal cliff. here's what it means to you. your paycheck will shrink. the payroll tax holiday is likely going away, for someone making $50,

moment for the united states economy, if president obama and the congress can't agree on a deal to keep the country from plunging over that fiscal cliff. here's what both sides are considering in a potential deal right now. an increase in tax rates for families making over $450,000 a year. extending unemployment benefits. and an increase in the estate tax. the president seemed hopeful but cautious when he addressed the american people earlier today. >> today, it appears that an agreement to prevent this new year's tax hike is within sight. but it's not done. there are still issues left to resolve. but we're hopeful that congress can get it done. but it's not done. >> let's get straight to our chief white house correspondent jessi jessica yellin. she's over at the white house with the very latest. the president seems pretty optimistic that it's within a few hours we could have a deal, right? >> reporter: wolf, the people i just spoke to here say they are no more or less optimistic than they were this morning. which is to say they are not cueing the confetti just yet. senator mitch mcconn
